Critic Reviews for Nocturama
You may not think that a movie that asks you to understand terrorists is for you, but if you give Bonello 130 minutes of your time, he'll make you a believer.
When the ruthless, faceless power of the state finally asserts itself, what is meant to be a shocking climax merits little more than a nod and a shrug.
If this is artistic self-indulgence, then please, please, let us have more.
Nocturama makes an intriguingly cinematic case for showing over telling. But as a depiction of how, and why, terrorists (or anarchists or whatever they are) can take down a city, it falls apart in the face of what happens in the real world.
Audience Reviews for Nocturama
The filmmaking is hypnotic, but I'm more interested in the nihilistic, hypocritical, and almost hipster like terrorism of the protagonists. Their motivations are deliberately muddled, yeah it's anti-establishment but each character revels in the material world they supposedly despise.
Nocturama is not only a gripping (and tense) drama/thriller but also a fascinating narrative exercise whose strength turns out to be its main weakness. Full review on filmotrope. com
